Curriculum Mapping

Curriculum Mapping Documents

We thought it would be helpful for maths teachers if we identified our favourite "rich tasks" from the NRICH collection.

These resources have been chosen because they are ideal for developing subject content knowledge as well as mathematical thinking and problem-solving (process) skills.

The documents give links to the different topics in the curriculum. We know they are transferable and useful to all teachers, whatever curriculum they follow.

To help you further, as teachers create additional mapping documents based on ours and send them to us, we are adding them below. If you have created a similar mapping document that you are willing to share, please let us know.


Further NRICH links to the Secondary Mathematics Curriculum in England

NRICH has worked with the Secondary National Strategy to develop guidance based on NRICH problems that illustrate what pupils should know and be able to do within a particular process strand.

This material can be found on this page, by clicking on the 'example' links in each of the 'Mathematical processes and applications' strands on this page, or by searching for NRICH on the Standards site.

NRICH links to OCR stages

Mark Greenaway, an AST in Suffolk, has worked on embedding resources listed in the mapping documents to the 10 OCR stages. They do not use OCR at his school but use the stages to help ensure progression. We think these might be useful to some of you too:
Stage 1
Stage 2
Stage 3
Stage 4
Stage 5
Stage 6
Stage 7
Stage 8
Stage 9
Stage 10

Scottish Curriculum for Excellence

Lynne McClure has mapped NRICH activities to the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence first and second level experiences and outcomes, and Susan Ronnie from Kirklandneuk Primary School updated Lynne's original document. The new version can be downloaded here.
